To commemorate the 2021 International Day of the Girl-child, the Founder/CEO of the IA-Foundation – Ronke Adeagbo granted an interview with TVC News.
Key highlights of interview are:
- Girls are equally as important as boys as well with a saying that when you educate a man, you educate an individual but if you educate a girl, you educate a whole nation.
- Girls are more vulnerable and as such are endangered species.
- Some girls miss school during their monthly period because they cannot afford to buy sanitary towels.
- Frequent kidnapping of pupils also deter them from going to school
- Parents keep the girls at home as house helps or as slave labour.
